Mindfulness for Teen Anger: A Workbook to Overcome Anger and Aggression Using MBSR and DBT Skills


Product Description

Published USA, 2014
The authors use mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) techniques to show young people the difference between healthy and unhealthy forms of anger. Teenagers will learn how to stop overreacting, find emotional balance and be more aware of their thoughts and feelings in the moment. The 46 numbered activities include a combination of exercises to do in the workbook and skills to practice in the real world. Guided mindfulness practices and meditations are a major part of the book; several activities ask the teenager to write personal reflections; and journaling is encouraged.
